Sunday Morning 7/5/09

Today’s sermon was pretty emotional for me.  The first part has some dead spots for this reason, although I edited most of it out.  The sermon is a departure from studying the Sermon on the Mount and instead focuses on true freedom with 1 Peter 2 as the background text.  Notes are below.  You can either click play here to listen or follow this link for the podcast version that you can listen to or download to take with you as you go.  May God richly bless you this week and may you live truly free.
